Beyoncé sacks general manager

04 February 2014, 07:06

Los Angeles  - Beyoncé has sacked her manager and become her own boss.

The Drunk In Love hitmaker and Jay Z are now in total control of her career after ditching Live Nation executive Faisal Durrani, although her husband doesn't hold an official professional position.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Jay has been heavily involved in Beyonce's career for years, and was instrumental in organising the Mrs Carter Show World Tour.

"But he isn't officially regarded as her manager - she really is independent."

The change in focus is to make sure her career is handled with her family in mind, and with the couple reportedly keen to give their two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy a sibling in the future.

The insider added: "Now the couple have Blue, she wants to make sure her family come first at all times, especially as there's talk of them adding to the brood.

''The best way to do that is to make sure all managerial decisions are made by her and her husband - together."

A spokesman for the star insisted Jay Z isn't "involved in her management", and claimed she has been in control herself for four years.

They explained: "Beyoncé has managed herself since 2010 under her company Parkwood Entertainment.

"Faisal Durrani worked for her as general manager for a very short time. Jay Z is not involved in her management."
